By now, I’m pretty sure most of you know who Emily B is! In case you have been hiding under a rock, she is the girlfriend and mother of rapper Fabolous son. Emily was first introduced to the world on VH1‘s ‘Love & Hip-Hop’. She starred in the show for two seasons before calling it quits a few months ago. Love & Hip Hop premiered a spin-off show, Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta back in June. I DON’T watch that show but I do read about it in blogs. For whatever reasons, people compared Mimi (Stevie J’s girlfriend and daughter’s mother) to Emily. After doing my research, I came to a conclusion that both women had story lines that dealt with bad relationship and drama caused by their men. However, I do not think that their stories are the same and neither does Emily. In fact, DON’T compare Emily to that other chick because she do not like it. In a recent interview with Hello Beautiful, Emily spoke on people comparing her and Mimi. Below are some excerpts:
There’s a lot of people who say that this new season of Love & Hip Hop has the same formula as your season of “Love & Hip Hop.” How do you feel about that and do you feel there’s a mirror image?
You know I get a little upset when they compare characters because I’m nothing like any of those women. My story is not like any of those stories. I don’t see Fab in any of those men in that show at all. No offense to them, but nobody knows [how it is]. Y’all get to see the Stevie J’s and the Lil’ Scrappy’s and nobody really knows who Fab is or what he does or what he’s about. People just make assumptions and it really bothers me because he was never on camera for you to make that assumption so people really don’t know.
Everyone is like Emily B–she’s that Mimi character, she’s staying with Fab…What do you feel about that? Does it make you angry?
I mean I spoke to Mimi and watching her I felt for her. I understand how it feels to love someone and feel that pain, but I’ve never been through anything that she’s been through. Fab only has one child with me so I don’t know what that feels like to have a man with many. I’ve never dealt with anything on that level in my life. Her story is a strong powerful story that I can’t even imagine going through.
So what’s Emily B up to–life after “Love & Hip Hop?”
Well right now I’m filming a spin-off to “Love & Hip Hop.” Me and Chrissy are filming a project. I won’t go into too much detail, but we have a project coming out in the Fall which is going to be a totally different. I mean, same producers but different feel–more of a family-fun loving show.
